3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: JUL 29, 2014 12oz bottle poured into a footed pilsener glass. The aroma is a light, dry lemon zest cereal, and straw. There’s a touch of soapiness to it too along with light floral and grass notes. It pours a sparkling clear, pale yellow with a whipped foam, white head. A thick ring is retained, with a healthy surface layer, and lots of sticky puffy lace. The taste is a medium bitter with a light sweetness, a very dry and crisp combination. The light body has a creamy texture to it with lots of fuzzy carbonation. There’s a distinct pine note and lemongrass on the finish. It does have a bit of a "cleanser" quality to it. The aftertaste is light, and mellow with a weak pine and cereal character.

35,5 cl bottle @ home, BBE 03.02.2015
Aroma is sweetish with malt and grassy hops. Flavour has grassy hops, grainy malt and some fruity tones. A pils slightly more sweet than usually. I like the hop profile here.

2.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap pint in the Burger Bar, Mandalay Bay, Las Vegas on 5th July 2014. Pours a very light, bright straw blonde colour, the white head staying around well. Good hop feel to the taste, the aroma more subtle, but still hoppy. I found it refreshing and I enjoyed it, even though it is little one dimensional flavour wise.

Tap pours clear straw yellow with white fizz. Musty sweet grainy aroma, with dry hay like hops. The flavors follow with a musty lemongrass-lime and white grape must dryness along with a clean Ray going pilsner malt. Really nice hoppy German pils, another high quality beer from firestone walker.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours straw-yellow with no head. Very clean looking with ample-sized bubbles. No lacing as suggested though. Aroma is pretty conventional pilsener territory; spicy, grainy, dusty hops. A small amount of lemon and biscuit malt. Dry palate that’s light and refreshing. More spicy noble hop flavor with some herbal notes. Malt character is introverted.Typical scratchy pilsener-bitterness on the back-end.
